      I am a three time survivor of 2 types of cancer since 1988, there are many more on the site that are 2+ Dx survivors. How can we help you?

      I know that coco1101 has had breast, thyroid, and lung cancers. She's been battling one kind of cancer or another for about 30 years.

      If I am not mistaken, there are a lot of people here on WhatNext who have had and survived multiple cancers.

      I am an 8 year survivor of esophageal cancer and a 5 year survivor of an aggressive uterine sarcoma. The esophageal cancer returned at the same time as the uterine sarcoma.

      Thank you all for the responses..I just needed to know others have gone through with strength and tenacity. I feel as if I'm at the end of my rope. 4yrs ago had a lumpectomy with17lymph nodes removed. 2 yrs ago had a mascetomy on the other breast..now the hysterectomy 2weeks ago. Today I finally learn how bad it was and where to have chemo/radiation..my husband has Parkinson's and it's been hard on him. If you all can get through this, I have to find the courage to go forward. Bless you all.

      God will not give you more than you can handle … with His help. I know it seems impossible, but When you make it through, you will see just how strong you have become. You have my prayers on this journey.

      I have had an aggressive T-Cell Lymphoma three times (PTCL-NOS), another aggressive T-Cell Lymphoma once (AITL), and Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS, precursor to leukemia) once or twice, depending on how you count it. Three years ago this month, I had all three simultaneously. Also had a transplant and have had no sign of either lymphoma for three years. The MDS tried to come back, but my new immune system whacked it.
